    French court suspends burkini ban

    Mayors do not have the right to ban burkinis, France’s highest administrative court ruled Friday. The Council of State’s ruling suspends a ban in the town of Villeneuve-Loubet, near Nice, and could affect cities around the country that have prohibited the full-length swimsuit.

    For an athlete, an Olympic medal is a priceless possession. But for Polish discus thrower Piotr Malachowski, his winning medal may be an opportunity for something bigger.

    Welcome to the dark side of the universe. In a direct contrast with the beautifully bright Milky Way galaxy, a “dark twin” called Dragonfly 44 has been discovered 300 million light-years away in the Coma constellation, according to a new study. But don’t cue “Star Wars’ ” Imperial March theme music or Darth Vader breathing just yet (even if the closeup image looks like a slightly creepy emoji). Although it’s massive and mysterious, Dragonfly 44 is really just misunderstood. Dragonfly […]
